Last Change IPA by Weyerbacher brewery is a a great IPA with tons of great hop flavors exploding from aroma to flavor from the Apollo hops, Centennial, Cascade, Columbus to Simcoe hops. Personally I am not a big fan of Weyerbacher based on trying many of their beers as everyone’s tastes are a bit different but Last Change IPA by Weyerbacher brewery is absolutely amazing and a great go to brew for any hophead. From the smoothness of the beer to the grapefruit aromas and flavors plus the nice piney and citrus notes it is simply a great craft brew and at only a 5.9% ABV with the 60 IBU this can be a session for people with a higher tolerance for alcohol in the slightly higher ABV brews. First you must know that Weyerbacher brewery makes outstanding brews but Last Chance is just that for many homeless dogs and cats. Yes, you heard that correctly as you can check it out at this link where they take their profits and donate a considerable chunk to help homeless dogs and cats with almost $100k being donated as of this review. It really makes me just want to run out and grab another 6 pack knowing that I will enjoy a great tasting IPA and be helping out a great cause all at the same time.
Double Simcoe Double IPA by Weyerbacher Brewing is an American 2x IPA or Imperial IPA at 9% ABV and sporting 90 IBUs. Double Simcoe pours deep copper color with a nice off white head with subtle hints of grapefruit but with the first sip you realize this is not your ordinary 2x IPA. After your first sip you realize this double IPA has a solid malt backbone with a subtly caramelized apricot flavors with a bit of pine and citrus with a dry caramel malt flavor. Love the joker on the label on the neck of the bottle which hints to the creativity and aggressive flavors you are about to sample.
